This is my favorite restaurant in Destin. Lovely, elegant, yet casual atmosphere with great views of the harbor. Food is delicious. The menu changes from time to time, but the fish is always great. Nice bar area with limited menu.

Marina cafe was amazing. Great food and wine. The view of the marina from the large windows provided great ambiance. Our service was friendly but slightly rough around the edges. I will definitely be back.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Marina Cafe! The maitre d's greeting at the door was friendly and he congratulated us on our anniversary. Our table had a beautiful view of the harbor, and our waiter was friendly and efficient. I had the shortrib appetizer and the redfish entree. Apparently the redfish has been a staple of the menu...

We ordered a couple of bottles of wine both excellent. We had several alcoholic drinks OMG they were perfect! Bread was crisp crust and soft in the middle. Our food... More

I came here late with some friends and the manager still sat us graciously. The waiter was knowledgeable and willing to give suggestions. Everyone liked their food. The shrimp and grits was so fresh and filling. The atmosphere is excellent. Would definitely come back to try more items on the menu.

We have dined at MC for last 17 years. Gets better each year. Family says a trip to the beach is not complete without visit to MC. Great service. Personal service and very efficient management.

I'm going to start off saying that we were on our way to Harbor Walk to let the kids see the fireworks when after sitting in 2 hours of traffic (we came from Seaside) we decided we wanted something much better, which led us to Marina Cafe. The host of our beach trip recommended it saying it was his favorite... More

Marina Café is one of our favorite restaurants in Destin. Every table has a gorgeous view of the harbor and the service is always excellent. I can't get past the Encrusted Redfish to try another dish. The Redfish has been on their menu for years and is outstanding. Just a little different twist with a spicy touch. They have a... More

We came here during a bachelorette party. I had made reservations before hand. There was a little bit of a wait when we got there and the bartender out front was very rude but once they seated us, they made up for everything. We had a private room that was just perfect. The waitstaff and food was amazing!! I would... More
